Hey! A new chapter! and they are finally starting the journey!
So please enjoy.
Gentle morning sunlight seeped through the heavy curtains of the maou's chambers. Yuuri had already woken up. He did not have a deep sleep the night before since it was a big day today.
He sat up and changed into his usual black uniform, getting ready for the day. Neither wolfram nor greta was there with him, since wolfram had been busy with training and greta was to stay with cheri-sama for safety reasons.
"so this day has finally come." Mumbled yuuri to himself as he looked at himself in the mirror.
Yuuri combed his hair and straightened his black uniform, getting ready to leave for the battle.
Yuuri reached out to the blue pendent that lay on the wooden table next to him. He picked it up and walked towards the window. Yuuri held up the necklace to the morning sunlight, allowing it to clearly show the patterns embedded in the clear blue stone. "Julia-san, please give me the power to protect everyone." Whispered yuuri.
yuuri put on his protection charm, took up morgif and walked out of his heavy wooden chamber doors.
The hallways were dim, Yuuri's shoes clapped against the marble floors in the hallways on his way to the front of the castle. Yuuri came to a stop as the guards at the main gates opened a way for their maou to pass through.
Yuuri stood at the top of the steps, "good morning! Everyone!"
Yuuri's cheerful morning greeting caught the attention of the groups of people who were rushing around, making last adjustments and preparations.
They all turned to their maou and replied with many voices of "good morning" s
Yuuri nodded with a smile and proceeded to where his subjects were, but then a very familiar group caught his attention. That group was…
"eh? Hijiri? Why are you here?" yuuri looked around again, "even the other members of brinel are here?"
Hijiri reported, "heika. The mission today requires 20 majutsu users. Since we, brinel, are the elites of elite majutsu users, 20 of us were chosen to help."
"ah, I see." Mumbled yuuri, then he waved to them, "well, it is nice to see you guys again!"
There were joyful sighs of "heika" and "captain" in response.
Yuuri scanned over the people who were getting ready for their departure, there were gwendal and gunter and wolfram were holding out a map, discussing the tactics, Conrad and yozak stood side by side, talking like old friends, hube stayed by murata as murata monitored the preperations, brinel was making last arrangements and… quite a huge number of shin makoku soldiers were standing around.
Yuuri was puzzled to why they had to bring the army. He headed towards gwendal and the others. Gunter immediately gave his favorite maou a morning squeeze, "good morning, heika."
"hey! Gunter! Get off yuuri! He is my fiancé!" as usual.
Yuuri pushed the both of them off him. Then turned to gwendal, "ne, gwendal, why do we have to bring the army too? That was not mentioned in the plan."
"We have no idea how many people the thriving sparrows. We have to be careful." A clear cut answer was given.
Then, murata, hube, Conrad and yozak headed over. Murata said, "shibuya, the preparations are all done. We can leave any second now."
"ok. Let's go."
Just as they were going to head for their horses, a heartbreaking yell of a little girl stopped yuuri in his tracks. Greta was crying as she ran for yuuri, "yuuri! Don't leave!"
Yuuri knelt down and opened his arms, welcoming the small figure to bury herself in his arms. As yuuri comforted greta, he saw that cheri-sama, annissina, Gisela, Nicola and the three maids were standing at the bottom of the steps, faces filled with worry. They had come to see them off.
Yuuri let go of greta and faced her, "greta, there is nothing to be scared of. I promise you. I will keep everyone safe. Nothing bad will happen, ok?"
"but, but, what if you disappear again? Yuuri? I don't want to be apart from yuuri!" greta wailed even harder.
Yuuri patted greta's head, "shh, greta is a good girl. I won't die. So don't worry. Remember, no matter what happens, I will always be with you right here." putting his hand over her heart. "Because we are always one family. Ok?"
Greta sniffed, "greta will always be with you too. Yuuri."
"yes. That is a good girl" yuuri gave his daughter a last hug and climbed onto Ao.
He looked back from Ao and waved, "bye, everyone!"
Then they rode off.
"murata. Can you brief me on what I will have to do after I part with you guys? I just want to make sure I will be doing the right stuff." Asked yuuri as he and murata rode side by side.
"ok." Murata took out a map and pointed. "We will part with you around there. You will have to proceed to meet the thriving sparrow on your own, since that is one of their conditions. We will be tracking you from a distance so that we can come to your aid once you need it. "
Yuuri nodded and murata continued.
Murata took out a flare and handed it to yuuri, "this is how you will be giving us a signal. Once the battle with the thriving sparrow start, please light that to notify us. Also, please mind how you use your maryoku to fight the members. Our aim is to have you compress soushu, so don't use your maryoku for the enemies unless it is absolutely necessary." Murata grinned, "your swordsmanship is even better than lord von Bielefeld's, fighting off some soldiers of thriving sparrows with morgif should be a piece of cake."
"ha! It seems so. Right? Morgif?" Agreed yuuri and he gave morigif a pat, which was responded with a "uuuuaaaa" in agreement.
And finally, they were at the end of the forest, a fair distance away from the appointed meeting place. There, they were to part.
After checking that he had his flare and weapons, yuuri said, "goodbye everyone."
"what goodbye? We will see each other soon enough. So it should be 'see you guys later', you wimp!"
Yuuri gave a weak smile, "I guess so."
"Stay safe, heika." Conrad said worriedly.
"I'll try my best."
"bocchan! You will stay safe. Don't just try. We will be waiting for you! If you aren't in one piece after this battle, you won't be able to go to the celebration party afterwards!" teased yozak.
"yes. That would definitely be a loss if I don't go."
"Heika! Please stay safe! The truth is I don't even want to part you for a second! But nothing can be done! The only comfort I have is that I know I will be able to share peaceful day with heika after this! " wailed gunter dramatically as he reached to hug yuuri.
Yuuri pushed gunter away, "hai, hai, gunter, I don't want to be parted from you either…"
"remember what you should remember and stay composed. This should be good training for your future of being maou…" Commented gwendal.
"don't you dare cheat on me! You wimp! Or else I will kill you when we get back to the castle!" yelled wolfram.
"how can I even cheat in the battlefield?!?"
"stay safe, yuuri. I have faith in you." Said Conrad.
"I will. Thanks, nazukeoya."
"bocchan, show them what you've got and tell me how you kicked their butts in the party!" said yozak.
"I will kick their butts… yozak."
"heika. I will be at you aid once you need it. Rest assured." Confirmed hube.
"thanks hube. I can count on you."
"let's train together again after this! Captain!" said hijiri for the whole group.
"you guys must train every day, I have my hopes high for you guys!"
"take care of things while I'm not around. Ok? Murata?"
"thanks and sayonara."
Yuuri looked at everyone with a smile once again and rode off to the appointed place. Thankful for the last chance he was given to hear all of them talk to him.
That's it! How was it? Nice parting?
Hope this chapter was good.
This was not a short chapter! I am so proud of myself!
Thanks a lot for reading!
